Sandy’s Summary

The Internet has put a whole new spin on shopping. Whether you are a shopaholic or you just purchase exactly what you need, online resources can save you time and money. You no longer have to "shop till you drop." Now you can shop in your robe and slippers using the Internet to make all your purchases.

Shopping online is safe and secure as long as you deal with a reputable company and learn how to recognize a secure web page when you enter your personal information. You will also want to investigate privacy and return policies.

After you do that, online shopping is just plain fun. You don’t have to run from store to store to get prices. You can use comparison websites to find the best price on just about any item. You can flip through online catalogues with your mouse, try clothing on virtual models, and take advantage of Web-only special prices.

The Internet also specializes in personalized items. Put your pet’s picture on a mug, buy perfume created just for you, or create gift baskets right from the comfort of your home. You’ll feel like royalty.

With the Internet, you can even buy and sell used items. So clean out the garage or basement and make a few extra bucks without the hassle of a garage sale. Then you can go online and find that treasure you have been longing for.

Shop online. It’s fun and easy!
